I don't think you can pinpoint anything except love of the band. I know Deadheads that are hippies, Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, Islamic, Atheistic, Doctors, Lawyers, Unemployed, Janitors, eccentric, insane, genius, and not so genius and everything in between . I know ones who love the jams and experimentations and who hate that and just love the tunes, pewople who are into the lyrics, or music...... I can go on and on. the only common thread I can find is the love of the band.

A deadhead is a Human who loves the Dead, Period!! (Ok, maybe some of the Deadheads I have met come from different dimensions or solar systems, so maybe human is to restrictive a term.

As the buttons that were prevalent at shows in the mid 80s said: "We Are Everywhere".

Or maybe "We Are Everything" would be more appropriate.

Dancinbears: I sure your touchhead post was not directed to me.. but if it was, the meaning of what i said was that a touchhead is maybe.. patkelley. BEcause of the circumstances at the moment. He listens to the Brent Years and beyond. But I think it's alright to categorize someone like that. If you listen to post touch of gray, it means you like the later years. Anyways a deadhead is a deadhead. regardless of the subcategory of touchheads. This is too funny, I feel like I am being super redundant, repeating all these terms.

well yes, actually Max, my post was kinda directed at you. But some other people have pretty much summed up what I wanted to say in posts below this. It's that age of yours...(very cool to be young, so I don't mean it in a bad way at all), but you can only have a vague sense of where that 'touchtead' thing came from. Those touchheads that you've read about, and the way the media protrayed it, well those people have long moved onto another fad and forgot the dead completely. Anyone on this forum, who listens to the music, FOR THE MUSIC, isn't a touchhead. Reguardless of what era they like or don't like. If you'd ever like to see what a touchhead looks like I'll lend you my high school yearbook to flip through.....class of '88. there are TONS of them in it. Today they're long gone.

brent head yes ..touch head no....

touch of grey was being played long before 1987 ...so that term holds no water...
